I think your topic is good and has the potential to be powerful. That said, it seems a little generic and doesn't make any connection between your experience and why you want to go to law school.

Topic is generic and the writing is boring. The experience is fertile ground for a great personal statement, but you need a more compelling hook and stronger, more emphatic writing. Unlike above poster said, you don't need to connect it to "Why Law;" in fact, doing so would probably harm this topic. You're writing to demonstrate your best character traits through a compelling experience - just do that well and you're perfect.
